Ken Rosewall Regional Project - Launch

Kids Tennis Foundation (KTF) launched the Ken Rosewall Regional Project (KRRP) at Kingswood Park Primary School in Penrith New South Wales on Monday 15 February 2016.  Funding for this Project is from global asset management company CQS, the ICP and the Yulgilbar Foundation (Myer). 

It was the most fabulous day with many in attendance including Ken Rosewall of course, Sir Michael Hintze (CQS) who had flown from London especially for the event, Peter McQuibben (ICP) who had flown from Washington, Paul McNamee (Chairman & Founder KTF and IC President Australia), Victor Eke (IC Australia & KTF Board), Matt Starr (Tennis NSW), Councillor Ross Fowler (Deputy Mayor Penrith), Board Members Tennis NSW etc. Principal of the school, Katrina Berwick, was the perfect host and made all of us feel so welcome. Once we were welcomed by the school captains, Paul was fantastic as MC and had the attention of the many children when highlighting Ken’s incredible tennis record. Sir Michael too spoke to the children about his tennis background and the importance of sport in his life, encouraging them to be active and stay happy. Councillor Ross Fowler spoke of the importance of KTF programs in the Penrith area and Matt too spoke of the benefits associated with playing sport. Once the formalities were over, coaches, Elton & Tahnee conducted the KTF program in brilliant fashion. Ken, Sir Michael & Paul had a hit with the kids  & they absolutely loved it. KTF programs under the KRRP banner will be conducted every week of the school year (40 weeks) in many regional schools throughout Australia.
